Centric has announced “We Are the Joneses,” a new docu-series executive produced by Queen Latifah and Shakim Compere (Flavor Unit Entertainment), that follows the inspirational work and private lives of plastic surgery power couple, Dr. Michael Jones and Cathleen Trigg-Jones.

The Joneses are an affluent African-American family, who run a multimillion-dollar cosmetic surgery practice, Lexington Plastic Surgeons, with thriving offices in New York, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., Atlanta and Miami. Each 30-minute episode features the emotional journeys of two patients looking to transform not only their bodies, but their lives. Viewers will also get a peek into the private lives of the Joneses as they balance a successful surgical empire, Cathleen’s television career, and raising a family.

“We Are the Joneses” premieres with two back-to-back episodes on Saturday, April 22, 2017 starting at 10 P.M. ET/PT on Centric. The 13-episode series will air over seven consecutive weeks, with back-to-back episodes premiering each week except the finale, which will air solo.

Dr. Michael Jones is a world-renowned cosmetic and reconstructive surgeon, who has been instrumental in developing a groundbreaking procedure to treat keloids in people of color. A published author and pioneer in surgery for darker skin people, Dr. Jones’ research has enabled him to make advancements in the field such as a scar-free rhinoplasty procedure.

Cathleen Trigg-Jones is an Emmy Award-winning journalist, producer, actress, and host of her own talk show, “Chic Chat.” As the heart of the practice, Cathleen also manages all of the marketing for Lexington Plastic Surgeons and its expansion into new cities. During the season, Cathleen also embarks on her own emotional journey to find her birth parents that inspired her charity, Trigg House, which focuses on the emancipation of foster children. Adopted as a baby, Cathleen’s life before the age of two is a mystery. Who gave her up for adoption? Will finding the truth finally give Cathleen a sense of belonging?

Produced and distributed by CatScape Productions, “We Are the Joneses” is executive produced by CatScape’s Cathleen Trigg-Jones and Dr. Michael Jones, with Flavor Unit Entertainment’s Queen Latifah and Shakim Compere also serving as Executive Producers.
